    Ok guys, I looked everywhere, and I could not find the key for my windows XP Pro disc, so I am now going to purchase it on-line...

    Anyone have a site which has good deals on XP?

    Thanks!

    Ok, well shame on me for not giving details...

    I tried to install Vista a while back, it never installed correctly, and I wanted to re-install windows XP...

    SO... unless belarc can pull it off the XP CD, this probably isnt going to work for me..

    There are programs that you can get to show your key.

    1) I don't suppose you actually called MS? They might be able to help. Especially if you registered your XP.

    2) If not tell them you just figured out your copy is hacked and want to go legit. You should be able to buy a key.

    3) Which version of Vista? Premium (top of the line version, not sure that is the name) is back liscenced to an XP downgrade install if you so desire.

    It was XP Pro OEM version...

    To be honest I do not remember if I registered it or not...

    Maybe they can look it up because it was purchased when I moved here...
